let him get that close or even harder to believe michelle let him in a pizza place. after the democratic and republican conventions president obama is still ahead of mitt romney in the national polls but the romney campaign has a lot of money to spend and have a new ad campaign in which they're encouraging voters to, quote, break up with obama. the idea, i guess, is to lure those swing voters who supported obama last election over to the other side and while it's unusual to encourage people to break up with the president as if he's a lover or something, it's a strong campaign. the ads themselves are pretty effective. ♪ >> hello, america, it's us. >> your parents. >> listen, you know that your mother and i don't like to get involved in your personal affair. >> we love you and just want you to be happy. >> it's just this man that you've been seeing, this bernock. >> barack obama. >> we don't think he's right for you. >> he's not our kind of people. >> we realize that we think it's exciting he buys you things like health care and whatnot. >> honey, the guy wants jusone thin
